Pacers to get specially-made trousers soon

Pacers to get specially-made trousers soon

Bangladesh pace bowlers will formally get their specially-made trousers very soon. The jersey rights holders of Bangladesh national cricket team informed this.

Sports and Sports Design (S&SD), the jersey rights holders, said they will formally hand over those trousers to the pace bowlers.

According to S&SD, the pacers don’t need to use any alternative substance to shine their balls if they use the trousers as they can shine the balls merely by simple touch with the trousers.

World cricket’s governing body International Cricket Council (ICC) has slapped a temporary ban on the use of saliva to help bowlers avert health risks during the global coronavirus pandemic.

Fast bowlers from around the world, including Bangladeshi pacers, have raised fingers at ICC for banning saliva use abruptly before holding required talks with all stakeholders – even without fixing an alternative substance to shine cricket balls.

Since the imposition of the saliva ban by the global cricket’s apex body, the jersey rights holders of Team Bangladesh are trying to invent a new type of trousers for the pacers so that they don’t face any difficulty while trying to shine the ball in absence of saliva.

S&SD used special fabrics, which they imported from Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, and China, to help the cause.

When asked about the innovative trousers for the players, especially the pacers, S&SD owner Mahtab Uddin Anwar Ahmed Santu said the trousers will give comfort to the pace bowlers during their bowling, but our effort is still in its experimental phase.

He, however, informed that they have already made some trousers and experimentally given those to a selective number of pacers to get their feedback and if they get positive feedback from them, they will step up further efforts upon obtaining necessary permission from the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).

“We started thinking about such a noble move when ICC slapped a temporary ban on the use of saliva to shine the ball after the emergence of the deadly coronavirus. We’re trying to do something to help shine the ball legally. As part of our efforts, we’re trying to produce special trousers for the pace bowlers so that they can shine the ball without using saliva,” Mahtab told The Independent.

According to him, “Still it is in the experimental phase. The fabrics we are importing from Thailand will give much comfort to the players. We’ve, meanwhile, provided trousers to the selective ones among the pacers. We’re thereby waiting for positive feedback from them.”

He also said they want to talk in detail about the special trousers after the experimental phase.
